Pay it forward

Angelina Jolie's speech after receiving the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2013 Governors Awards.

This is one of the best and most touching speeches I've ever come across, focusing on one very simple and selfless point- humanity. 
Not all of us are blessed with a charmed life and everybody goes through ups and downs; some more downs than others. 
But for every one who sits in a room, a roof above our heads and our hunger satiated- we are already far more fortunate than millions around the world. 

Count your blessings and appreciate what you have 
And if ever an opportunity arises, however small it may be, pay that blessing forward by helping someone.
